A crown could be a good solution for you if you have some discoloured fillings and would like to improve their appearance or fix teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or cracks. Crowns can be used to replace these to give you a more appealing smile. Additionally, if you have had root canal treatment you will need a crown to protect or cap the restored tooth, allowing you to eat and bite down on it as if it was a real tooth. Crowns are also used to anchor a bridge or denture firmly in place in the mouth. We can offer same day crowns as we create most of our crowns using our advanced Cerec© process.
We create most of our crowns using our advanced Cerec© process. The crown acts a hat for your tooth protecting it and holding all the fragile bits together, it leaves you with a strong, natural-looking tooth and prevents further damage.
At Confidental in Sandhurst, we offer same day crowns using Cerec©. CEREC® uses a small camera, it takes pictures of the tooth we are working on and we’re able to make the crown for you on-site. It means that you’re not left with a temporary crown. Instead, you leave us with your final tooth that is measured, printed and fitted on the same day. Better yet it means no impressions either.
We use very hard compressed pure ceramic blocks. There is no metal in them at all. Our printer will cut into this block and make the tooth. Once we’ve tested to see the fitting is correct, we put your crown in an oven. The oven hardens and glazes it, making it nice, shiny and smooth. All this in an hour and a half! Most of your appointment is spent in the waiting room having a nice tea or coffee whilst we make your crown.
If you have missing teeth than a solution could be a bridge. Here is how they work:
Once you have a bridge fitted, you will have to take extra care during your daily hygiene regime to ensure it stays plaque free and does not cause bad breath.
If you have a missing tooth, the remaining surrounding teeth will gradually drift into the empty space, resulting in a poor bite and a potentially unsightly smile. A dental bridge is artificial teeth made to replace the gap – these are cemented onto the surrounding teeth. Bridges will help restore your bite and smile, it also helps keep the adjacent teeth stable.
